Sale season starts earlier every year, and although we should be bored of bargain-hunting, we just can’t get enough of nabbing that great sale item. There’s something so satisfying about buying something you love for a reduced price; however, it’s easy to get carried away and end up with a cupboard full of clothing you will never wear. If you didn’t love it at full price, you won’t be saving money by buying it now. To avoid making this mistake, go in with a plan and use the sales to pick up some key pieces that you’ll love for years to come. Check out our savvy sale shopping guide to the ultimate post-Christmas splurge!
1. A Winter Coat
The January sale is when most shops take the opportunity to get rid of winter stock to make room for all kinds of summery delights. However, a quick peek out of the window tells us that it’s still very much winter weather out there, so why not pick up a new winter coat in the sales? The drop in prices mean you don’t have to spend as much to get quality tailoring and beautiful fabrics, and a good coat can last you years. Look for neutral colours and a timeless cut which flatters your shape, so that you’ll still love it next year.
2. A Leather Jacket
Another great investment piece, a classic leather jacket is effortlessly cool and the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Real leather can be pricey, so now’s the time to buy; although there are plenty of quality faux leather jackets out there, you just can’t beat the look and feel of the real thing. A real leather jacket will last a lifetime, and will only get better with age. Be sure to shop around to get the best deals.
3. The Perfect Pair of Boots
If you’re anything like us, you’ll be living in boots during the winter. They go with almost anything, keep your feet dry and disguise the thick, comedy socks you’re wearing to keep warm. A good pair of boots is worth its weight in gold, and there are plenty in the sales this year. Whether it’s a riding-style boot for casual wear, this season’s must-have studded ankle boot, or a classic suede boot, you’re bound to find the one for you, at a bargain prize to boot!
